AgGateway On The Road

AgGateway To Join AEM’s Celebration of Modern Ag on the National Mall this Month

By Paul Schrimpf, AgGateway Director of Marketing and Communications

AgGateway will display along with more than 30 agriculture companies and organizations on the National Mall in Washington, DC as part of a Celebration of Modern Agriculture, March 21-22.

The event, coordinated by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, is designed to reach top agriculture journalists in the national media, as well as legislators, regulators, and legislative staff about how agriculture innovation is moving the industry, and the country’s food supply, toward a more sustainable future. It also serves as a celebration of National Ag Day, March 22.

“Bringing the agriculture community together around National Ag Day to tell this important story could not happen at a more critical time, as USDA is in the process of developing its Climate-Smart Agriculture & Forestry Partnership Program and environmental sustainability continues to be hotly debated in Congress and the media,” says Nick Tindall, AEM Senior Director of Regulatory Affairs. “Highlighting how innovation enables sustainability will be vital to ensuring policies allow farmers and ranchers to produce and innovators to innovate.”

AgGateway will display as part of the Digital Ag Pavilion, an area dedicated to sharing advances in and benefits of technology and connectivity. AgGateway member Topcon and partner organization Agriculture Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) will also take part in the Pavilion.

“We are pleased to take part in this effort to take the positive message of modern agriculture to the Beltway,” says Brent Kemp, AgGateway President and CEO. “We also look forward to having some meaningful conversations about the benefits of seamless connectivity, and how AgGateway is driving this forward through collaboration with our members.”
